Established in April 1969 by Mr. M. C. Varghese, an extraordinary visionary with social commitment and dedication. The Mangalam Group initiated the project of publishing a weekly magazine that would quench the thirst of an average Malayalee reader. The success of Malayalam Weekly marked the dawn of an era in the publishing sector of Kerala, rewriting the publishing history in Asia (circulation of 1.5 million in 1984) and established a well-reputed household name Mangalam in India.
Today the Mangalam Group of Companies enjoys a comfortable spacing in one of the India’s largest media houses. The pioneering vision and academic activities of Mangalam led to the emergence of a number of educational institutions in the higher education sector of Kerala, giving more options for higher studies and research in Engineering, Management Studies, teaching and international studies.
